Time to get on the phone to your State Senator and Indiana Representative in Indianapolis.

Just when states are banning these devices after they have proven to drive up accidents, courts find them unconstitutional, and case after case of fraud are uncovered buy the companies who run these devices, Indiana is moving against the tide of reason.

“It’s a safety factor,” said Sen. Jim Arnold, D-LaPorte.  – Can someone please call this idiot and let him know that these cameras have shown in study after study to increase traffic accidents.

In many cases, the yellow light timing has been manipulated into tricking the motorist into “running a red light”. This resulted in more revenue and increased traffic accidents.

Virginia Dept of Transportation:

Look at the actual VDOT data. Overall in Virginia, T-bone or side-impact accidents increased 20%. Rear-enders went up 42%. Injury accidents increased 18%. Total accidents went up 29%

Case after case and study after study show similar results. Camera enforcement is a threat to public safety.

Besides the public safety issue, the companies that run these things have been caught in multiple incidents of fraud to increase revenue and violations of privacy.
